Lizzy and Diesel, book two
When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences, leaving a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and spontaneous seduction.

Hilariousity ensues once again! I love Janet Evanovich's humor. She is definitely one writer that can make me snort while reading her books at least once, every time! This spin-off from the Stephanie Plum series is definitely a winner.
I love Lizzy and Diesel both...and I LURVE their chemistry. Very oh-la-la, must fan one's self at times while reading... :)
I find this series to be so much fun, both in terms of the characters and the concept. I love watching the effects of each of the Luxuria Stones on people in the story...seeing how the different "evils" affect their actions and even their personalities.
If you're looking for an easy and wildly fun reading experience, give this series a shot. The first book is Wicked Appetite.
